The Tory leadership contest has seemingly been a showcase for diversity. Our guest, Nels Abbey, a celebrated author and essayist joins the team to talk through the candidates. We start off with "Black out the Box" where we celebrate the best of Britain, big and small (1:30). Then we ask whether the ethnic diversity in the contest makes us feel represented (10:31) and we have an in depth discussion on Kemi Badenoch and what her reaching the final four tells us about the direction of the Conservatives and Black Britons. We close things off with our first reactions to The Forde Report into racism within the Labour Party and the lack of news coverage it has been given (49:05), before discussing Nels' (and Dr Boulé Whytelaw III) superb book "Think Like a White Man" and his journey in making it (1:04:42).
